About Lisa

Lisa always found herself in the role of a helper during times of crisis.

Since she was a child, Lisa wanted to help. Whether it was rescuing a blind duck at a park or defending her younger brother against bullying when he experienced severe asthma attacks.

As an adult, a phone call at 4 o’clock in the morning launched a trifecta of trauma that changed Lisa’s life forever.

Three experiences with death and illness occured in her family in just 10 months—her beloved brother died suddenly of an asthma-induced heart attack, her father was battling lymphoma, and her son became catastrophically ill. When her family’s world imploded, Lisa felt as if she had become irrevocably damaged.

Instead, she collided with her calling during a sunrise walk along the beach at the height of her son’s illness. Lisa heard the word Soaringwords, and suddenly knew why she was born.

Lisa channeled her passion and resilience into a global movement to inspire millions of people to never give up.

Her lifetime of experiences helping others through trauma, grief, illness, and setbacks—combined with her own personal experiences—led her to founding Soaringwords, a not-for-profit with the mission of inspiring children, families, adults, seniors, and health care professionals to take active roles in self healing to experience greater physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

In this memoir, readers will laugh and cry—often on the same page—as this feisty protagonist models how to become the hero of your own life through helping others and gratitude.
Today, Lisa is an internationally recognized Positive Psychology thought leader who has inspired more than 500,000 people. Wherever you are within your journey, this book is a must-read tool to provide illumination and inspiration as you seek to become the best version of yourself, even in the face of overwhelming obstacles.

Our Town
Help and hope
Our generation's been brought up with technology, yet not born with it, which provides us with the perfect blend of agility and focus. We learn fast and adapt dynamically to the needs of clients and the industry.
We care about each other, about clients, about the value delivered, about the feeling our employees and clients get from working with Respect.Studio. A true partnership can nurture peer dedication and responsibility. That's why we strive to build two-sided relationships.
Respect for people, ideas, and actions is the default setting of our team. Combined with genuineness, it creates a safe space where everyone feels understood and valued. We call ourselves a team for a reason, and that reason is empathy for one another.
